Technorati's citizen media charts



A few of major events seen on the Internet this August - e.g. the Skype P2P network malfunction and the Google Analytics data blackout - were fine examples of how traditional search engines, namely Google, are far from being able to get their hands on the real-time pulse of the web. Searching Google during the time these problems occurred did not do any help. Yet, following-up on some leading blogs did. But how do you track millions of active blogs? certainly no personal blogroll can do the job well.

Currently tracking 101.8 million blogs and over 250 million pieces of tagged social media Technorati is the undisputed authority on what is happening on the World Live Web, right now. Technorati "search, surface, and organize blogs and the other forms of independent, user-generated content (photos, videos, voting, etc.) increasingly referred to as citizen media".

Daily history charts of any keyword activity from Technorati can be easily embedded into any website or blog as seen below. Interested? Check Technorati's blogwidgets section for more.

  1. In this case the word Conceptis probably is used in referring to Conceptispuzzles ;) but usually a search anywhere gives quite many "wrong" links. This happens even in Amazon.com, since conceptis is probably a word in Latin (and also English). I get many hits with "See more references to conceptis in this book"

  2. Technorati provides a relatively high quality results but you are right, the web is full of phony search results and the big companies are part of this spamming wave. Amazon as well as other majors have software systems to push their "results" for almost any keyword. this way you can easily get results such as "See more references to please don't spam the web in this book" ... brrrr...
